Brancaster Trip 2018
Kayaking is really fun and inspiring. It's a sport that everyone should try because you get to go really fast and then just glide across the water. It's satisfying when you look over the edge of the kayak and see the water gently flowing past you.
The first challenge was taking the barrels and other equipment to the other side of the water. Luckily it wasn't too cold! We then had to synergise to make our raft using the instructions given to us. Once made, we got to rest our crafts in the water - we all had a bit of a wobble but we got there in the end. We were given our paddles and started paddling, at which point it went really wrong...most of us fell off the raft! We all had great fun though.
We got to jump in quicksand which was great fun as none of us had done that before. It was really surprising as it was extremely cold! Luckily, it's not like it is in the movies so we all managed to get out of it okay. To wash the sand off we ran back into the sea, which felt as warm as a bath after the quicksand. What a geat experience!
